Laos, 1976. The monarchy has been deposed, the Communist Pathet Lao have taken over.
Nick Muncie, superstar, is bored. As he lunches in a trendy restaurant in London, accompanied by his shadowy bodyguard known only as M, his eyes alight on the woman at the next table, artist Olivia Morgan. She rebuffs him. To Nick, accustomed to the pleasures the power of his fame and potent sexual charisma assure him, it is an extraordinary rejection. And so, with M's complicity, a cunning pursuit is devised: . Nick commissions a portrait, and during the emotionally charged sittings in Olivia's studio the seductive games begin. Talented and self-possessed, Olivia has wrongly thought herself impervious to the flattering attentions of a man like Nick. Intrigued by Nick's power to give pleasure and easily deny it, Olivia is drawn to him against her will, but the intoxicating fantasies of their lunchtime trysts too quickly evolve into a destructive cycle of passionate sex and submission. In the heat of their relationship, the balance of power shifts. Olivia finds herself physically enthralled as she is emotionally appalled at her surrender, while Nick is slowly consumed by his own desire. For both Nick and Olivia, as well as the silently watching M, lunch releases dangerous appetites.
One of the reasons we love to spend our money on greasy fast food is because of how quickly we can get it. We don't have to spend a lot of time preparing food when we can swing by a drive through and immediately have an entire meal brought out for us. Unfortunately, when done too often, constantly purchasing fast food can take a big chunk out of our pockets and our health. Lunch in a Flash is the perfect alternative to buying your lunch every day. It offers a way to save your wallet, your health, and your taste buds (because the same lunch menu everyday does get a bit repetitive). The book offers a wide variety of ways to create your own healthy lunch, so you'll be able to look forward to trying out your new lunch whether you're at home or stuck in the office. Of course, our schedules change from day to day. One day, you may have plenty of time to sit down and create a large lunch that you can pack away from the next few days. Other times, you'll barely be able to gather enough time to scrape out a meager quick lunch or sandwich. That's why the book offers lunch ideas with a variety of preparation times, so you'll be able to make a great tasting lunch for yourself (or others) no matter how long you have.
